As a daughter, I admit that I have done this several times. My mom always jokes that I have stolen two of her horses, and that "They used to hang men for less". :)
But actually, neither was because they were my heart horse. My heart horse turned out to actually be the horse we bought for me. The first time I stole mom's horse was because we had leased an ex-girlscout camp horse who we later found out had hardly any training, was just very good at walking nose-to-tail. So I stole Troya, her Haflinger mare, and she took Zippo, and late, Blue.
An now, I have somewhat stolen Broddi, since he is very green and mom does not have the time nor desire to do all the necessary ringwork with him, while I had an overabundance of both. Plus, I really wanted to actually do some work and ride a horse, since my mare was big and pregnant and not feeling very inclined to work. We have since decided that I can take him to shows and jump him, but now that Tiara is back to working, mom gets her horse back for trailriding. It works. :)
